This week Bono said modern music was very girly and ends up being accused of being sexist!!

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the singer said: “I think music has gotten very girly. “And there are some good things about that, but hip-hop is the only place for young male anger at the moment – and that’s not good.” He added that one of his sons, Elijah, “believes that a rock and roll revolution is around the corner”. And the singer said he agreed with his son that the genre “will return”.

The Evening Standard listed twitter insults that were made at Bono like;

One Twitter user posted: “1) define ‘girly’ 2) why are boys filled with rage 3) f*** off Bono.”

Another tweeted: “Bono thinks expressing emotions in a non-shouty way is ‘girly’. It’s not. This is just toxic masculinity through the lens of ‘music’ (I mean, if we’re talking metal, U2 don’t exactly cut it). Men: it is not ‘girly’ to express feelings without hitting things or yelling.”

Let me be clear I have never liked Bono or U2. For me R.E.M were always far superior but really I always liked a heavier version of rock than U2 offer. I don’t know Bono but many things I have read about him in the past made me believe he seemed a bit of a prick but this time I think Bono has a point.

Modern Music is shit, its girly, boring, lame and mostly the same. Where are bands like Nirvana, Guns n Roses, System of the down, Sex Pistols, the Prodigy  and Rage against the machine? Even rap music has been tamed massively. Its like the music industry has decided that music with any kind of anger or realness to it should not be accessible. It seems that the vast majority of musicians are just puppets selling sex and their gimmicks as opposed creating new original music.

Look at males artists from Britain just lately Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Zayn Malik etc, etc they make Oasis and U2 sound like Cradle of Filth. Everything sounds like it straight from a Disney Musical.

 

ADELE

What am I doing right now?

The answer is listening to Adele!

Why would I be listening to Adele?

I am trying to understand what this huge obsession is that so many people seem to have about Adele, “Hello” has recently hit half a billion hits on YouTube. I know modern day music is shit and Adele is undoubtedly less shit than most but I don’t think she is anything special! In fact I think she is overrated and her being so overrated is mainly due to the poor quality of corporate music, after listening to shit like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj anything that is not corporate pop shit, sounds amazing even if it is just corporate middle of the road shit.

I have never rated Adele, I’m not saying she is shit I’m just saying she ain’t as good as everyone seems to think she is. I find her music boring, soft, whiny, depressing and full of self pity, I much prefer to listen to something a little more motivational. I admit she is better than the bad bunch we have at the moment but she ain’t brilliant. All I see is a miserable fat girl singing average, middle of the road songs about being a miserable fat girl!

Call me old fashioned if like but give me Guns n Roses, Johnny Cash, Rage against the machine or the Prodigy any day and turn this self pitying shit off.
